Vorpal Games has announced they are bringing Super Rude Bear Resurrection to PlayStation 4. SRBR is a super hardcore platformer that aims to fix the problem with the genre. The game naturally adjusts its difficulty to match the skill of the player. Every time you die, you leave a permanent corpse behind, which can stick to spikes and be jumped off of, press down switches, be used as a shield from projectiles etc.
Once you die, you can’t die in the same place again. But the entire game is beatable without dying. For devout platformer players, completing the game without dying poses one of the hardest challenges ever in platforming history, but the core game itself can still be fully completed and enjoyed by even a newcomer to platforming.
